Houston CDL DWI Lawyer
Defense for Commercial DWI in Texas
If you are a commercial truck driver charged with DWI (driving while intoxicated) in Houston, Harris County or the surrounding areas in Texas, your worries are greater than those of an average drunk driving case defendant. Not only are you concerned about preserving your driver's license for personal use and preventing a criminal record, you also have serious reason to worry about protecting your means of making a living.
Whether your DWI charges came about when you were operating a truck or simply when you went out to dinner with your spouse in your own car, a conviction will put your job in danger. It is worth all of your efforts to do all that you can to defend yourself. Call a Houston commercial DWI attorney immediately to schedule an appointment to evaluate your case and explore ways that our law firm can defend you and protect your driving career.
Texas Legal BAC Limit for CDL Holder
In Texas, the blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.04% or above is a crime if you hold a commercial driver's license and are driving a commercial vehicle. At this legal limit, you are considered driving under the influence.
Penalties for DWI With CDL in Texas
Being accused of DWI is enough to put any commercial driver’s livelihood at risk. The penalties can include:
- First DWI conviction: disqualification from holding commercial driver's license (CDL) for one year.
- Second DWI conviction: disqualification from holding CDL permanently.
Without a commercial driver's license, the career you have trained for and gained experience in over time will be lost to you. You may recover your driver's license to drive your own car, but you will not be able to work driving a commercial vehicle.
